I feel like this is a multi-layered question.
Brace yourselves: I have a take.
I think the question 'is the Nintendo Switch worth it' is a tough one to answer.
I love my Switch. The ability to take a legitimate console experience, complete with one of my favourite video games ever, on the bus in the morning: that's legitimately life-changing. I mean it's actually increased my quality of life. I spend over an hour on public transport every work day and because of the Switch I now look forward to that time.
In addition, being a father of two with limited time, the Switch has allowed me to fill video games into unique slots of my life. It's hard to place a value on that.
The Switch is a little underpowered, the screen scratches way too easily, and it is difficult to justify buying a console for one game regardless of how very fucking good that game is.
It's a tough one. I say the Switch is worth it because of its promise: there will be Nintendo games on this console and they will be very good.
Your mileage may vary.
